Strange Clientele in the Vesper Magic Shop

    All week long the Vesper citizens have beenspeaking about walking corpses entering their town. Being the hard-workingreporter that I am, I traveled to Vesper to investigate this matter.

Unfortunately, I could not see one of these creatures with my own eyes so Iasked around a bit and I did manage to get a general description of thecreatures.

Apparently to some it is taller than an average man. Some say its skin is blackas ash, but according to others it is as red as blood. What they all seem toagree on is where the creatures are going. The monsters try to make their wayinto the magic shop east of the Vesper bank.

Eyewitnesses say the monsters then hand a note to one of the shopkeepers. Ofcourse the shopkeepers are terrified and do whatever is on the note. The noteappears to be nothing more than a list of reagents. The mages give the creaturewhat it wants and afterwards it pays them with a bag full of gold! Theeyewitness could not tell me what happened next, but I assume the monster musthave returned home, wherever that may be.

Other sources tell me strange things are happening at the Vesper cemetary. Iwouldn't be surprised if it were these creatures that are the cause of it.

I will try to find out more about these strange happenings and you will hearfrom me when I do!
